Gonzo Presents Muppet Weird Stuff was released by Playhouse Video in 1985, as part of a series of compilations featuring songs and sketches from The Muppet Show.

In this one hour special, Gonzo pays tribute to the weirdest acts from The Muppet Show, and tries to hide the fact that he's hosting from the inside of a trailer instead of a posh mansion. Camilla the Chicken co-hosts with Gonzo, while Kermit the Frog makes a visit.

Muppet Show guest appearances include Jean Stapleton, Dom DeLuise, John Cleese, Vincent Price, Julie Andrews and Madeline Kahn.

This is the only video in the Playhouse Video series to feature clips from the Muppet movies.
